I don't normally watch "the House of Payne." It isn't something that crosses my radar and when I see it in the guide, I never think to stop and watch. In fact, I never just flip through the channels, I look at the guide on our dish and chose my television shows accordingly.
When it comes down to it, the Christmas story is something that we are invited to live in and experience for ourselves. And whether we feel like shepherds who are outcast and dirty and smelly and we get to come to the manger and witness the miracle... or if we feel more like the privledged who humble ourselves before the manger... we are all invited to come and we all have a story to tell.
There is a really neat moment in the episode where the matriarch of the family (I wish I knew it well enough to know her name) really puts everyone in their place and reminds them that this story isn't something to be made fun of... because we are talking about one of the most important events in human history - this is the birth of our Savior.... if you head over to tbs you can watch the full episode - I think it's worth it!
